Expressing strong indignation and opposition towards Speaker of U.S. House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi's visit to China's Taiwan region, Tan Kefei, spokesperson of China's Ministry of National Defense, said the Chinese armed forces will deliver what it says.

The Eastern Theater Command of the Chinese People's Liberation Army (PLA) has organized joint-service combat training exercises in the waters and airspace off the Taiwan Island, which include sea target assaults, strikes on land targets, and airspace control operations, as well as live firing of precision-guided munitions, according to Tan.

Tan said Chinese armed forces will resolutely defend the country's national sovereignty and territorial integrity, and will never leave any room for any form of "Taiwan independence" activities and external interference.
